I was driving to see some great friends in Lawrence, Kansas when I spotted the road signs announcing Santa Claus, Indiana ahead. According to local legend, "the townsfolk were gathered in a small log church on Christmas Eve discussing a new name for their town...Suddenly, a gust of wind blew open the church doors and the sound of sleigh bells drifted inside. The children ran to the door and shouted, "Santa Claus! Santa Claus!” The decision of what to name the town became clear...and the Santa Claus, Indiana, Post Office was established on May 21, 1856."
